Hey hey fellow may 2012 brides!

Anyone know if peonies will be in bloom by 6th may? And if so what should i expect to pay for bouquets and arrangements etc of them?

    I don't know the answer, but I called/went in to speak to some florists and asked them what flowers were in season in my colours, and looked through pictures with them, et cetera, and they were so helpful!

    It depends on the weather, sometimes they are there that early, it is around their season though so florists should probably be able to get hold of

    hi there



    well i am a florist, and they are usually available late spring, however...they are not around for very long..of course you can get them later but just be prepared for the price increase. Have you thought of having silk peonies? i can source some lovely ones and i do silk floral design..just an idea hun x

    Im intending on having Peonies and my florist hasnt said there are likely to be any probs, they were about that time this year, im the 12th n want peonies and roses so hopefully we'll all be ok xx
  • We are May 18th and are having Peonies. Im not sure when they are in bloom for sure, but I got the impression from my florist that it was in season. She quoted approx £70 for the bridal bouquet and £50 for the bridesmaids... it may have been slightly less.

    Hello. I am attempting to make our table centres and have been trying to find some decent artificial peonies. Would you possibly be able to message me where you get them from? Thank you so much x

    I am getting married on 26th May and my florist even advised to replace Roses with Peonies for the cost.

    This is all good to hear! Peonies are my faves & I didn't even realise May was their season when I booked the wedding; don't you love it when a plan comes together?!xx

    I can reliable claim they were in bloom 7th May this year... But was a very warm spring! You can always have a backup, that's what I did... I arranged with my florist if they weren't in bloom I'd have tea roses instead... Hope this helps!
